Manchester by the Sea ★★★★★

I had La La Land as the best film of the year but that was obviously a mistake because this is on a whole other level filmmaking.

****one of my favorite parts of this film is when Casey Affleck is walking home and he just slips and falls on the icey sidewalk. I dont even know if it was intentional but it looks and feels 100% real/ a random occurrence that Lonergan felt like keeping in the film.
